I am looking for recipes using dried blueberries or cranberries.

I use a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe but add white chocolate chips instead or just chunks of cut up white chocolate. I like ghirardelli's chocolate best. Then I add craisins (I'm sure blueberries would work just fine to.) Here's what really makes them, Throw some chopped macadamia nuts in there. Yum! Sometimes I'll use toasted almonds instead. Depends what I have on hand. (I usually just put about 3/4 cup of each.) Bake according to cookie recipe and enjoy. Everyone always loves them.
Also I put them in salad. If you us a balsamic vinaigrette dressing the sweet and sour tastes balance eachother out quite nicely.
Actually any baking recipe calling for blueberries or cranberries will work fine. I have put my dried fruit in a small bowl with enough water to cover them for an hour before I start mixing my ingredients. The water hydrates the fruit and makes them chewy in the recipe. Good luck!
